ONLY ON 3 UPDATE: Wilmington misses out on anti-bullying documentary

READ MORE:

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington fell just short of pulling in enough votes to bring a documentary on bullying to the Port City.

Wilmington Police asked residents to rally by going online to vote and bring the movie "Bully" to local theaters. The top ten cities in the voting will get to play it in theaters.

At last count, though, Wilmington just missed the cut. It finished at No. 11.

What's the deal here? I assume the movie deals with bullies in the school system. Why glorify them with a movie? Does anybody really think they will back off harassing their prey? The best way to deal with them is like any other criminal. When someone is found to be a bully, they should be permanently expelled from the school system for the remainder of the year. Then, they start over in the grade they missed. If that does not work, require the parents to enroll them in a paid private school that can deal with their punks.
